A large gathering of people of all ages and cultures from across the Church to encounter Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, to pray, and be formed so our lives can be transformed. The first International Eucharistic Congress was in 1881. Eucharistic Congresses have been offered nationally and internationally ever since. This is the 1st National Eucharistic Congress in 83 years. Historically, they include opportunities like open air Masses, Eucharistic processions, inspiring speakers, formation, discussions, and more.
Everyone. Individuals, couples, families, youth, the lay faithful, clergy, religious, parish staff, and more. The US Bishops have asked every parish to send at least one person to the Congress in order to bring the experience back to those who cannot be there. More than 80,000 pilgrims are expected.
Because the Church needs healing. And the world needs the Church. Come for a transformative encounter with Jesus Christ and his Church. Together, we will ask him to revive our hearts, our Church, and our world, and launch us into a new chapter of missionary faith. This historic event promises to be a pivotal moment in both American history and the legacy of the Catholic Church.
Bishop Jeffrey Haines, Bishop James Schuerman, Fr. Juan Manuel Camacho, Fr. Phillip Bogacki and Fr. Dan Janasik.
